A Gift that keeps on giving~

My dear friend Terry and I have admired
this sweet print ever since I posted her
on my blog. (see her right there-->)

Discovering the artist,
her sweet hubby bought a print
which now hangs in their home.

We met for a little visit the other day
and she surprised me with this large print
she found at a second hand shop.

This frame, including the double mat of dark green & brown,
has been waiting behind my bedroom door
for about a year now,
waiting for the perfect picture.

Now that is a pretty picture!
Thank you, Terry.

I hope to get her hung on the wall
this week and will share once
it is done.

So you could say this is
Part I 'THE FRAMING'
of a Metamorphosis Monday project.
Next week Part II 'THE HANGING'

Visit Susan for more before and after stories

and since the door (on my pic) is blue...

Visit Sally for Blue Monday

Have a great day, ladies!
